Overview

The National Women's Music Festival highlighted the premiere performance of Ouroboros: Seasons of Life--Kay Gardner's new oratorio. It was performed by six female soloists (ranging in age from eight to 80-something), a 100-voice women's orchestra, and a 50-member women's orchestra, conducted by Nan Washburn from The Women's Philharmonic. The work consists of eight movements, each beginning with a narrative solo, moving to an orchestral interlude and ending with a choral chant. Each movement corresponds with the stages of women's lives as defined by the seasons of the ancient Celtic calendar. This is by far Kay Gardner's most ambitious work to date.
